Better today than tomorrow: Modernize your software securely and efficiently to reduce operating costs and be future-proof

Legacy system modernization

Your company has one or more legacy systems in use? These may be old and inflexible, but they are usually business-critical.

There are good reasons why, in times of digitalization, it makes sense to think about IT modernization and transfer the essential knowledge of your company to a new platform:

  • Legacy systems are expensive and slow down your business. Maintaining and operating your legacy system is expensive. This reduces your financial freedom for new developments and innovations that secure your market position.

  • Changes to your legacy software are very costly or impossible. Valuable time passes until a feature or bugfix is implemented in your legacy system. New requirements, such as real-time processing, relocation to the cloud or new sales channels are often not feasible at all.

  • Shrinking know-how and insufficient documentation endanger the future of your system. Experience shows that hardly anyone still knows the business logic of your software. The really valuable knowledge about rules, processes and decision criteria is hidden in old software.

  • IT security/cyber security: the security of your application is at risk. Security gaps arise due to discontinued support of the basic technology. These can threaten the existence of your company. At the same time, the number of regulatory requirements is increasing rapidly.

Migration, update or new development?

Modernizing an existing IT system means going through a change and working on the old and new system in parallel for a certain time. This transformation can take place in several small or one large step.

Are you unsure which path is the right one for you? Together we will find out.

To do this, we will take a close look at your old system and talk to you about the goals of your modernization project. On this basis, we then weigh up the advantages and disadvantages of a migration, an update or a new development. The result: a well-founded modernization strategy that is precisely tailored to your goals and general conditions.

To ensure that you waste neither money nor time on the wrong measures, we usually start with a proof of concept. Thereby we ...

TO DO

Make a decision!

Worst-Case

Everything stays as it is. Your risk: constantly rising costs and loss of market shares.

Have you already made the decision to modernize? Even then, there are many stumbling blocks on your way to a modernized IT system.

  • Unforeseen problems can cause your project to exceed its duration many times over or additional resources may have to be included.
  • Also possible: your system fails when going live and causes serious problems during operation.

Objective

The objective of our cooperation: A modernized application that replaces your legacy system reliably in whole or in part – with all the advantages that come with it:

  • Your system is flexible and can be adapted and expanded with little effort. Other systems can now also be connected with ease.
  • The knowledge about the business logic of your application is documented and centrally accessible. A large number of developers can further develop your software after a short training period.
  • Finally, you can spend a larger part of your IT budget on the development of new features that add value to your company / your customers and have the potential to increase your KPIs (for example, cash flow).

We know that financing modernization projects is critical. The modernization of IT systems is usually not a fixed item in the IT budget. As a result, money has to be freed up elsewhere – and will usually only when the trouble is severe enough.

That's why we see ourselves as a helping hand, who analyses your legacy system and puts the added value of modernization into perspective. This way, we can provide you with the arguments in writing for business value and return on investment, in order to communicate these to the financing parties.

Know-how is the most valuable capital of your company. It is therefore particularly worthy of protection and must not lie exclusively with an external service provider. You will otherwise face the same hurdles in your next modernization project just like now - no sustainable progress.

Our aim is to enable your employees to drive the modernization process forward themselves. We support you in this process through coaching, pair programming and other suitable measures. Good documentation will later help you to familiarize new employees with the system.
